By Jennie Chancey

When I first visited this website, I was looking at the show and tell section, and someone had made their two little girls dresses with this fabric. I thought they were so cute, and I was very excited to find the same fabric at Wal*Mart. Here is Honey in her new dress, and in the […]

Girls’ Regency Ensembles

I simply love all of the Sense and Sensibility patterns, especially because I am permitted to use them professionally. When a friend commissioned me to make a dress for her little girl, I knew exactly where to find the perfect pattern. Her description of the ‘dream outfit’ fit the Regency dress and pelisse closely, so […]

Well, here it is. My first Regency dress! I made a few changes to the pattern to make it more modern and my style, raising the neck line a little, and shortening the skirt. I also had to make all the Miss Petite changes to the bodice. I bought the fabric early in the spring […]

My sister and I just finished our first Regency dresses this week, and thought we’d share. Mine (the red one) was made using Jennie Chancey’s original pattern. The only change I made was to gather all the way across the front of the bodice, for a ‘fan’ effect. I also made some piping to edge […]

Hello! I received your Elegant Ladies Closet and Regency Underthings patterns for my 16th birthday this past December, and was so elated! A dear friend of mine and I are planning to do a Regency challenge for all of 2009, wearing only period correct Regency clothing the whole year, so I got to sewing my […]
